Nick Marcantonio, President of the Philadelphia Knights of Columbus Chapter said, “The Knights of Columbus is a charitable organization that was started to help those in need. For over 50 years, members have served traditional holiday meals to the men of SJH during Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter.”
For over 50 years, SJH has provided crucial and life-sustaining services with dignity, respect, and compassion. Each weekday, this outreach ministry provides a nutritious and hot noon meal for approximately 300 men, as well as case management services, on-site nursing services, daily showers, and mailroom services for over 1,000 men. Each year, it provides sleeping quarters for hundreds of men transitioning from homelessness to independent living in the community.
